Loads of issues... can anyone help with ANY??

Howard from Leeds UK


I'd bought, downloaded and installed Toast DVD as a replacement for the now defunct iDVD (which I LOVED)...

A couple of hours in... I'm massively disappointed. First off... I can't seem to actually name the chapters. I would have thought that would be a pretty fundamental feature for a DVD authoring tool.

Second, I'm doing all the editing on a contemporary iMac (no optical drive) - I was wanting export the final result as a standard Disk Image .dmg (which it says on the App Store spec is something you can absolutely do!) - then I was going to transfer that dmg file via flash drive to one of my older Macs that still has an optical drive to burn off a load of DVD disks directly from the .dmg. But instead it's giving me a ' .toast' file - what the heck is that, and will it work when I try to do a simple DVD disk burn on the old iMac?

Thirdly - I kind of stopped before I went much further and created a disk image (or .toast file, as they are calling them) and loaded in to VLC (as there is no built-in menu preview - not that I cab find anyway, yet another essential common sense feature??) - and none of the chapters had pulled through and it was just one video preview box in the middle. If this is as good as it gets than I'll be pursuing a refund!!
